Allan Taylor - Lay Soft on Your Pillow



Lay soft on your pillow tonight
For the morning will come too soon
Watching the shadows fade into light
We will bid farewell to the moon

And while you are sleeping my love
I will watch over you
Flickering eyes show your innermost dreams
When love comes to us anew

Though I may be some distance away
In truth we are as one
And you will be with me by night and by day
And forever when all is gone

The night is too short my love
And the road is too long to know
I will carry this memory of you
To the places I must go

When the swallows return with the spring
And the meadows are flowered in bloom
I will return to see you again
And the place that I call home

And though I may be some distance away
In truth we are as one
And you will be with me by night and by day
And forever when all is gone
Lay soft on your pillow tonight
For the morning will come too soon
Watching the shadows fade into light
We will bid farewell to the moon
We will bid farewell to the moon
